Strong winds, thunderstorms cause long flight delays

Stormy weather Monday night caused delays and cancellations at New Jersey airports.

Weary travelers at Newark Liberty International Airport found ways to keep busy and stay positive with delays of two or three hours.

Quick-moving storms downed trees and swept debris onto the streets in some areas, while others were left noticeably calm. A tree landed in the middle of a street in Cranford, taking a streetlight with it. In Maplewood however, winds and rain caused almost no damage. Click for coverage of airport delays
